What Is Dyslexia?

Dyslexic children and adults struggle to read fluently, spell words correctly and learn a second language, among other challenges. But these difficulties have no connection to their overall intelligence. Reading is complex. It requires our brains to connect letters to sounds, put those sounds in the right order, and pull the words together into sentences and paragraphs we can read and comprehend.

Dyslexia Reading Comrehension and Spelling

For children, teens and adults with dyslexia, reading comprehension can be a big struggle. Lack of reading accuracy is a common symptom of dyslexia, and it results in poor reading comprehension. For many students with dyslexia, decoding words can be so difficult that they get in the habit of ignoring content completely. Another way to help a child with dyslexia improve their reading comprehension is to help them improve their vocabulary. Due to the reading difficulties that dyslexia can cause, children with dyslexia often do not develop a core of necessary vocabulary like other children do, simply because reading is so problematic for them.
